Celebrating 31 years of bringing beautiful music to Cape May, the Cape May Music Festival presents classical, chamber, jazz and more each year.

Made possible by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.

Virtual Concerts

Long-time friends and peers Conductors Jed Gaylin and Eliot Bailen, of the Bay Atlantic Symphony and the New York Chamber Ensemble respectively, have partnered and will be presenting 4 short performances for classical music lovers to enjoy in the comfort of their own homes! After each, Jed and Eliot will be live on Zoom with you to field your questions about the pieces they’ve just performed, and anything else you may want to know about past Cape May Music Festival presentations! It’s easy and it’s free, although donations are most welcome.
